Gene: GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GHRH
Name: growth hormone releasing hormone
Description: Exhibits growth hormone-releasing hormone activity and growth hormone-releasing hormone receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including growth hormone secretion; positive regulation of growth; and positive regulation of growth hormone secretion. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space; perikaryon; and terminal bouton. Implicated in autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1; endometrial cancer; ovarian cancer; and renal cell carcinoma. Biomarker of breast cancer; endometriosis (multiple); obstructive sleep apnea; and reproductive organ cancer (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: GHRF; GRF; growth hormone releasing factor; growth hormone-releasing factor; growth hormone-releasing hormone; INN; MGC119781; sermorelin; somatocrinin; somatoliberin; somatorelin
